Proactively Fortify School Safety with Electronic Visitor Management
Posted on May 21, 2020 by TJ Trouba
Parents and educators both agree that schools should take any extra security measure or safety protocol necessary to help keep students safe, healthy, and actively learning. With the increased threat from intruders, schools have even enlisted the help of organizations such as the FBI to help them investigate and adopt tactics for keeping students and public areas safe. Unfortunately, such increased security often comes at the cost of many children’s healthy educational environment. Oftentimes, these increased physical security measures lead children to nervousness and confusion, resulting in a less than optimal learning environment. While implementing tools like metal detectors and surveillance cameras can provide noticeable benefits, there are more efficient ways to ensure safety without hindering the healthy learning environment. Savance Visitor Management can effectively manage the staff and visitors of your school, while keeping criminals, infections, and the uninvited outside.
This highly customizable software gives you the ability to track and manage any number of metrics for assessing visitor activity, including the power to know:
- Who enters a school
- What their purpose on school property is
- How long they’ve been there and how long they plan to stay
Savance EIOBoard allows administrators and security staff to keep track of who is inside school property at all times, in real time – and it does so with incredible efficiency. The software also ensures that frequent, authorized visitors can bypass longer entry times in favor of seamless check-in processes. Approved guests will be able to move in and out efficiently and safely, with easy-to-use, intuitive touch screen kiosk systems. Teachers and staff can expedite their check-in simply by using badges. These customizable solutions help ensure that school safety is just a finger tap away.
Every parent has the right to know that they are sending their child to a safe, healthy learning environment everyday. Now that COVID-19 has effectively shut schools down for the remainder of the year, the time to proactively get out ahead of new security measures is today. With all students and staff out of the building for the foreseeable future, the ability to implement new security measures without interrupting the flow of education should be taken advantage of to the best of our abilities. Savance EIOBoard provides powerful functionality to enable your school to simply and efficiently manage lists of visitors for all sorts of events and activities. Whether it be sporting events, school dances, or just everyday classes, parents and school officials can rest easy knowing that every guest has been verified and admitted based on your school’s specific, chosen standards.
As threats to school safety continue to change and increase, student security is not only a priority, but a necessity. Fortunately, with the right technology, schools can continue to be bastions of security and stability for all children. By implementing powerful software such as Savance Visitor Management, schools can help increase the effectiveness of their security and allow teachers and educators to get back to focusing on what they do best – helping your children grow and thrive.
